Paul Weller to Headline Teenage Cancer Trust Finale
29 January 2013, 11:01
Paul Weller has been announced as the headliner for the seventh and final night of this year's Teenage Cancer Trust gigs at the Royal Albert Hall.
Noel Gallagher is curating the 2013 events - in the place of usual main man Roger Daultrey who is taking a year off because of touring commitments with The Who.
It's the first time The Who frontman has let anyone else take control of the charity event - which has been going since 2000.
Paul Weller will headline Monday March 25.
"I'm looking forward to getting on stage for the final night of Teenage Cancer Trust at Royal Albert Hall," Paul commented. "I've always supported the charity and have seen first-hand how hard they work and what a huge difference it makes to the kids. When Noel asked me to headline I didn't hesitate."
Ryan Adams, Primal Scream and Noel Gallagher himself are among the other headliners - with Noel being joined on the bill by half of former Brit pop rivals Blur on his night.
Also newly announced are Palma Violets - who will support Weller - and former Super Furry Animals man Gruff Rhys who will also support Noel Gallagher.

Tuesday 19 - Ryan Adams plus special guest Beth Orton
Wednesday 20 - An evening of comedy with Russell Brand, Noel Fielding and very special guests
Thursday 21 - Primal Scream
